Health is wealth—taking care of your eyes is important to keeping them happy and healthy. Protecting your eyes from UV damage is especially important, as continued UV exposure can lead to a variety of eye conditions and diseases. Take care of yourself by shielding your eyes from harmful UV rays with our premium sunglasses.
Is UV Radiation Harmful?
The short answer is: yes. UV radiation from sunlight is prevalent in all of our lives, whether we are outdoors or indoors.
One of the most common sources of Ultraviolet (UV) light comes from the sun, with many different factors contributing to the amount of UV radiation that is absorbed by your body. Exposure to these UV rays can put you at risk from harmful eye diseases, such as corneal sunburn, eye irritation, cataracts, blindness, and even cancer. It is incredibly important to protect your eyes from UV radiation in order to decrease any risks of eye damage and long-term chronic illnesses.
